MOVIE


MOVIE ASSIGNMENT
MARKS IT’S WORTH: 5 BONUS MARKS (ie. five extra marks towards an assignment or test you messed up a bit on).
- Watch one of the films recommended so far. You cannot use Schindler’s List to complete this assignment.

ANSWER THE FOLLOWING FIVE QUESTIONS
How long should your answers be? Just long enough to fully cover your topic, just short enough to keep it interesting. On the questions that ask for your opinions, you get the full five marks by CLEARLY arguing your opinion fully.

1) Where and when does the movie occur? ie. What country(s) year(s) does the movie take place in?
2) What historical situation does the movie discuss?
3) How could this movie be viewed as a commentary about the situation?
ie. Does it make a historical argument about who was GOOD and who was BAD and HOW does it go about showing this?
4) Using the history that you know about the time period, what was going on in Canada that was similar to or related to what was in the film?
5) How are ATTITUDES from that time period reflected in the character’s actions in the movie? Give 3 examples.

DAY 13 & 14!

Today you do your tests.

We are looking at the 1920s, and how life changed a lot during this time today.

We will also be doing DAY 14 material today, which means we are one day ahead. This is GOOD!!

HOMEWORK:
DUE FRIDAY… STUDYGUIDE CHAPTER 3
DUE MONDAY… PROJECT CHAPTER 3 (Drawn notes)

Instructions;
You have been assigned a topic. Figure out a THESIS about that topic. My topic is LABOUR RELATIONS IN CANADA FOLLOWING WWI… I have done a sheet similar to the one you get, and I will lecture on it today or Friday. Your goal is to kinda follow my model.
- Choose 12 important points about your theme.
- Make a fill-in-the-blank sheet for your theme.
- The best studyguide sheet for EACH THEME will be assigned to the class to complete for Wednesday next week. So if your STUDYGUIDE THEME is chosen, you are IN LUCK because you have your homework done in one area already!
- Be helpful. If you put page numbers on your sheet, people will love you forever but not in a creepy way.
